Some of you may have come across Brendan B in comments, and some of you would have met him in Sweden as he was part of the Aussie contingent at the Saab Festival back in June. He’s down here in Tassie with his family this week and we caught up yesterday, visiting with Drew B and Saabill. Bill even let me take my old 99 Turbo for a spin!
Unfortunately, I neglected to take my camera with me. Which was a real shame as the day involved my 900 Turbo, a 1973 Saab 95, a 1977 Saab 96, a 1971 Saab 99, a 1989 Saab 9000, a 196? Saab 95, a secret project 🙂 , two 1979 Saab 99T’s, a 1985 Saab 900 Aero, a 197? Saab 99 (and about three others as well, a 1988 Saab 9000 Carlsson and a 1993 Saab 900 Turbo.
How’s that for a lineup?
Would you classify a Saab 900 as a hot hatch? Or was it too early and too big?
I clicked on the Auto Express link when I saw the story and was hoping to see one there, but alas….
This really deserves a post on its own, but….
The Saab 9-3 has just bagged an award for Best Premium Mid-Size Car for 2007 as judged by the good people at Autocar in the Middle East.
The Saab was a clear winner due to its stylish interior and exterior design, extensive list of standard features and engineering excellence, all of which reinforce the car’s strong position as one of the most luxurious cars in the segment.
Congratulations are in order, methinks!
The new Saab is still capable of being a BMW-beater
